UAH40B embezzlement case: Ukrtatnafta’s chief accountant charged

The Security Service of Ukraine and the Bureau of Economic Security have pressed charges against another alleged accomplice in the USH40 billion embezzlement scheme masterminded by the former management of PJSC Ukrnafta and PJSC Ukrtatnafta.

The agency reported this on Telegram, according to Ukrinform.

As noted, charges were pressed against Ukrtatnafta’s chief accountant, who was located in Zakarpattia region where she had been hiding from law enforcement.

"Among other things, it was established that PJSC Ukrtatnafta had produced and sold fuel through the gas station network without paying excise tax, although the relevant tax burden was laid down in the price for consumers. Therefore, the excise tax arrears in this case amounts to UAH 605 million," the report says.
